b. Assume that during 2015 Melrose had revenues of $950,000 and expenses of $800,000. Assume that all revenues and expenses were in cash. How much additional debt can Melrose take on before it violates the terms of the loan agreement?
c. Assume again that during 2015 Melrose has cash revenues of $950,000 and cash expenses of $800,000.
